Posted on 06/11/2014 2:00:14 AM PDT by Enterprise
Its hard to deny just how poorly Chicagos public schools are performing when it hits you in the face. Such is the case with Paul Robeson High Schools 2014 prom theme: This is Are Story.
That image came from veteran investigative reporter Chuck Goudie, who posted this image on his Facebook page.
Some people might enjoy mocking the irony of the gross misuse of vocabulary.
But unless the organizers of the prom festivities planned the wording this way as a joke, theres nothing funny about the situation.

The story be all wrinkled...gezz
In her yoot -
But seriously folks .....
The public schools in my hometown of Gary, Indiana have one by one been shuttered. Several of them were replaced back in the 80s by a new school (built with Federal Funds) called "West Side High School.
This school is promoting school and community spirit by selling windshield (or rear window) decals that proudly state in letters about five inches high -
Wess Syde Fo Lyfe
Dat ol' man river jes keeps on rollin' along.
But seriously, it was Paul Robeson who told his buddy Frank Marshall Davis to move to Hawaii for his health, and the rest is history.
Your shocked? Their are to many ways to loose if you our easily and definately shocked by bad speling and gramer.
You do realize that that one is going to go by most Freepers. They think it's correct English.
This explains where all those no/low info voters come from. They’re pumping out scores of thousands of newly minted Marxist idiots every year. If we don’t solve THAT problem, this country is DOOMED!
Here’s a PERSONAL anecdote:
While there are rare exceptions, a man or woman does not become a teacher in or principal of a government school today without passing political, ideological muster with the largely socialist/liberal educrats above him/her.
I picked up my grandson at his high school just after the November, 2008 election. Nearly EVERY car in the teachers parking lot sported an OBAMA bumper sticker! Some were PLASTERED with them.
On one occasion AFTER the election, I had to pick him up in the Principals office. As I waited for him, the Principal came out of her office and asked who I was. ( At all of 4-5 tall, I think shes Robert Reichs sister and just looks like the liberal/socialist she was. Actually, she looked like a bleeping troll!) I told her who I was and remarked on the student created anti-drug posters decorating the walls in the hallway.
Yes, she said, drugs are a problem in the schools today. I agreed and, recognizing the truck-size opening shed just afforded me and not being able to hold back, I remarked that the American voters had sent a wonderful message to our kids by installing in the White House a guy who still smokes and used cocaine in college? To my delight, the nearby ARMED security guy piped in with Yeah, he admitted it on the campaign trail.
She paused then blurted What do you want to say to that? I said there was nothing she COULD say but that I was blown away by the hypocrisy of those posters inasmuch as it appears that, if one uses the bumper stickers on the cars in the teachers lot as a gauge, every adult in that building voted for an admitted drug user to lead the nation.
We turned and walked out. My grandson glanced back and remarked quietly that she did not look happy.
No no no.
It’s “I OUR shocked.”
And “lyfe” probably the length of the sentences most of dem grajuats wil be survin befo it be ofer!
That was a really corny attempt at humor...!
We gots ta’ raze the teechurs’ celeries if we want two stop this.
I understand some of the confusion over words like there and their and your and you’re, but the proliferation of “loose” for lose really stumps me (and drives me crazy.) How in the heck did that one get started?
I can haz chezbrgr? life iz fulz of lolz, man.

All of those activities have teacher mentors/supervisors. It’s not just the students who are functionally illiterate, their teachers are too.
I really feel sorry for those kids who will now have to live in the real world and compete for jobs, positions of leadership, etc. They have been screwed by the very system that was put in place to prepare them for their futures.
Worse, the next generations will be saddled with “common core” nonsense which, in the end will create more dysfunctional people. God help them, they will need it.
It's a mystery to me, too.
The thing I constantly wonder about is how these people can read the writings of literate people, such as the ones who write books and the journalists for major newspapers (one can disagree with their politics but damn it, they do know how to write the English language), and still never notice the spellings of common words. "Lose" is one of them and my favorite (see my tagline) is the continuing mix-up of "its" and "it's." It is as though they found in the fifth grade that the possessive of a noun is formed by adding an apostrophe and then an "s" and that's it, Jack. The irregularity of English spellings goes right by them.
I'm convinced a time traveler came from the future and gave us “Idiocracy” as a warning.
“They think it’s correct English.”
No, it positively, absolutely ain’t.
But, doesn’t you tell nobody. You here? :)
I saw Idiocracy when it was new. The first time I saw excerpts of an Obama primary event in 08. I turned to my wife and said we are about to enter Idiocracy. I have been proven correct.
The finest Common Core can teach.....
“Shuh up! I watchin ‘Ow, My Nuts!’”
Ax me no questions, I tole you no lies.
That was a colossal mistake. It should have been “We Be Toys.”
It’s tough for kids to learn at the 12th grade level when their teachers are at the 7th grade level.
An if they wunt eat dat celery Michelle Obama will yell at them.
Great story. I think it reflects far more government jobs than just teaching.
Hah!. We should raze the government schools.
That a school is named for a prominent Stalinist is the real scandal.
Don’t you think that some adults looked at this thing at some point? Some teachers? Some administrators? Or maybe the business people who printed the item? So, is the story just sad? Or even worse than that because there are so few adults left in Chicago who can read?
